Gay werewolves Brian and Doug escape from a lycanthrope reservation to seek freedom in Maine, the only state with a sanctioned tolerance of werewolves. Their journey takes them on a road trip, complete with an overnight full moon stop at Brian's family home. While Brian wrestles with "changing" in front of his family, his brother-in-law conspires with bounty hunters and national police forces giving chase. Will Brian and Doug make it to Maine? If they do, what should they wear? Will they ever be anything more than faux paws? Hide your meat and cheese. Werewolvin' ain't what it used to be.Written by
It's a shame "Faux Paws" didn't have an advertising budget to gain more exposure because it really is a very funny movie. It's nominally about gay werewolves who break out of prison and their trek to Maine to be free, but it's really a film about freedom. It's witty and a lot of fun to watch the two main characters give and take, well acted in somewhat camp style by the two principals: the rest of the cast is also good. A lot of the film was shot on the road and much of the countryside is beautiful. It's apparent there wasn't a large budget to work with, but the film doesn't really suffer too much with the exception of one bit of makeup when one of the characters 'changes'. There's a lot to be said for small, independent movies like this one which are creative and well done, and I wish this one would get some word of mouth and notice because it deserves it. I think it would be a real crowd pleaser if it ever reached a wider audience.
